So that’s it. We leave Longgang, China after a month of rehearsals & previews. It’s been a long, sometimes exhausting time! But it’s all starting to pay off. Now the cast is off for a week vacation in Shanghai before we open there the first week of September.
We’ve had an exciting addition to the cast. Her name is Marsha Yuan. She’s a star from a Chinese television show called “My Show”…sort of like American Idol. And her mom just happens to be Pei-pei Cheng: a Chinese movie mega-star that played the character of Jade Fox in the movie “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.” They will both be with the tour for our Shanghai run and it adds a bit of crazy excitment to everything.
These are my final pics from Longgang, China. It’s the last of our rehearsals, technical rehearsals, and a fun party that the director threw for us at the hotel.
